Ways to protect our planet

There are many problems in our planet, but people are trying to find solutions.

In the first place, I would like to use our environment with care. For example, we can recycle more glass, more plastic, and other things like metal, clothes, shoes and plastic bags. Also, we can make something new from our old clothes like taking an old t-shirt and doing it a scarf. It would be an excellent idea. 

Secondly, it would be very useful to have new methods of transport like making electric cars, electric ships, electric planes and electric motorbikes. It would be really good for the environment becaus e there would not be so much air pollution. Also, l would prefer scientists to make jetpacks because it would be faster than other 
methods of public transport, so we would be at school in five seconds!

Finally, I would like scientists to invent something new that would help our lives to be easier than these days. If scientists did this in the future, we would be very happy and we would have better lives.

Film review

 Last week, I watched an amazing film To all the boys I've loved before. It's a romantic film, about a girl who wrote a letter for every boy she liked, but she always kept the letters for herself.
 I really liked it, because I like romantic films that are based in real life, The actors were talented and the songs were serene. The actors didn't wear special costumes, because it wasn't a science fiction movie.
 The only bad thing about the film was that it's only available on Netflix, so you have to pay 10 per month if you want to watch it. So you can't watch it unless you have Netflix.
 On the whole, it was an excellent film that everyone would be interested in, even teenage boys. I would absolutelly recommend this film to everyone. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Here's the link for the trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=555oiY9RWM4

Big Brother

By way of introduction to the topic of surveillance and privacy in this Unit, let's get one thing straight: Big Brother is not just the name of an inane reality TV show. In fact, that show takes its name from one of the best-known novels of the 20th century, George Orwell's 1984.

In case you are unfamiliar with the book, here is a simple video summary:



Now that you have grasped the story, can you see any similarities between the world described by Orwell and modern life? As the New Yorker magazine asks, "Are We Living in 1984?" Think about it, and help to make this post grow...

I haven't tried it yet


"I haven't tried it yet"

   I've always enjoyed sport and done lots of different activities either at school or at the sports centre. I've played volleyball, basketball and football since primary school and I have been in a volleyball team for two years.
  I haven't liked every sport that I have tried. One sport that I hate is table tennis because is so hard. Last year, I was in a trip with my school and we played table tennis. As soon as we started playing, the ball fell out from table - It was annoying-. I don't want to play again except when I'm playing with friends for fun.
  Some people don't like doing sport, but they enjoy watching it. There are lots of exciting sports programmes on TV. My friends and I like watching extreme sports, like kickboxing or skydiving. I haven't tried an extreme sport yet but if I had the chance, maybe I could do it.

My family: We are all keen on playing musical instruments and we are exteremely good at it.So a part of the film can be music played by my family and me!

My town: Heraklion is a historical place, just because as you can see in the picture there are ancient walls around it.Those exist because they were made by us to protect our town by the enemies.

Crazy and unusual sports

In the very disturbing game of toe wrestling , two people lock feet and battle with their toes, attempting to pin each other's foot down. Do you like this crazy sport?

City or country life?

                                         

  Some people say city life is bad for young people.However, I come from a city and I disagree with the statement.
  The main reason I prefer the city is because it is bigger than the countryside, so it has more schools as well as cafés, young people and teenangers can make more friends. Personally, it is important for me to be near shops and cafés, because I am interested in going for a walk with my friends on Saturday.
   The only downside at the city is the noise.The cars, the people, the motorbikes and the buses make a lot of noise. Also, it is a bit annoying, but if you are used to living with noise, it is not a big problem.
    On balance, I disagree that city life is bad for young people, as I think city lifestyle is more exciting than life in the countryside. In spite of that, some teenangers could not cope with life in the city, so it comes down to personal opinion.
